i've installed fedora 25 today coming from mint !

every things goes great . but when i shake the laptop unintentionally the screen turn around and make a 90deg or 180deg rotate .

every time this happen i have to shake my lap in different position until i get the normal screen !

is there anyway to force fedora to don't detect shakes and lap moves , or to force screen to be normal always ?

One option that comes into my mind is using the Rotation Lock as shown here

Gnome Rotation Lock

More info on the web...

gsettings set org.gnome.settings-daemon.plugins.orientation active false

would be a way to completely disable the gnome-settings-daemon plugin ...

Worked for me. Just slapped myself with a big old RTFM.

Thanks for the tip, but it seems like something analogous would show up in the Gnome Displays applet. I had to do a Google search to find this thread.

It worked for me, Thanks! It would have been more helpful if the "rotate" was in settings like Help pulled up, and they mentioned this. The lock icon on the rotate needs to change too. It is kind of hard to see the lock without glasses. :)

Wow, I've been wondering what was the button for for years
